Since I made it through four various Christmas concerts and facilitating a wedding at church, I thought it was in the clear for a straight shot towards Christmas!
But it was not to be. Last night I was asked to write a flute part to this lovely piece by Sandi Patty to be played at a baptism this coming Sunday.
It really is a lovely piece, and since the grandmother of the baby was kind enough to sing for my mother's funeral, I feel like this is my chance to return the favor.
But I'm a player, not a composer and this youtube piece is in the key of D and I need it in E flat - so I'll be composing and transposing instead of making Christmas cookies and writing personal Christmas card notes!
At least I got the refrain done so maybe I can get this done faster than I thought.
I plan to have a guide to celebrating the O antiphons up tomorrow.
